Self adhesive grinding papers
Self adhesive consumables can be used in 3 different ways
Option 1: The self adhesive disc can be fixed directly to the plate.
Option 2: The Kemtak disc is used with Bramet self adhesive grinding papers. It can be mounted onto the machine platen or onto the KMS disc if it is being used with a magentic platen. The plastic barrier film on the Bramet grips the Kemtak non-skid surface so that the adhesive is not used. This makes it faster and cleaner when changing from one grit size to another (Fig 1).
Self-adhesive disc on flexible magnetic backing. Will mount directly onto magnetic disc.
Self-adhesive disc on 1mm thick metal backing. Will mount directly onto magnetic disc.
Option 3: Self adhesive grinding papers or polishing cloths can be mounted onto KMS stainless steel disc. The machine platen is fitted with a magnetic disc. This allows easy change from one consumable to another.
